    That does it:mad: I gave you that motor so my mouse could live in the country. Now you ruined his home! Dam you guys are moving right along, I'm moved finally but still have to unpack. I'll have to see that block in person I might want it back:D so I can put it in my barn, so the mice will have their home back. Last thing in the garage moved today only took ten trailer and a moving company for the house! And I still have 3 trailers at your place, man I have a lot of stuff:eek:

    Today Tim and our buddy Huck Got the rest of the rusted away valve stems that were stuck in the motor out, I was too busy working to help:mad:, , Tim said the the stems that were stuck in the valve guides came out pretty easy considering the exposed part of the valves were rotted off:eek:, But after that we got it in the hot tank and cleaned up the parts:) Already to go get the valve seats redone at the machine shop,,,, Beth
